Well, I use http://www.dslreports.com/stest?loc=3 since I'm on the east coast, but you get the idea.

Much more thorough info. Not sure about accuracy.

If you're on RR, then the TW/RR test will give you higher figures, since you've mostly likely got fewer hops to get from their computer to yours.
I use dslreports for 'max speed' and occassionally www.numion.com for 'real-life' tests.
